About Our Mystery…

The Cat Screamed at Midnight

It is October 31, 1936…

And, at the New Jersey country estate, 'Conifers' (just down the road from the historic Whistling Swan Inn), Sir Hugo Smythe Ambruster, publisher of The Daily Truth celebrated his 70th birthday last night. The assembled guests celebrated the event in a most fitting way, with enough food and drink to choke the proverbial horse. But, it seems the horse may have fought back. For, this morning, Sir Hugo was found dead in the stables near the main house.

Your challenge should you accept it, will be to unravel this mystery.


The founders of Without A Cue have been performing murder mysteries since 1996. Without A Cue is dedicated to providing the highest quality in murder mystery entertainment, and will STOP AT NOTHING to ensure that every murder is the best it can be. Some of the elements that set us apart are:

All of our shows are fully scripted. Although the actors are required to be experienced (and adept) at improvisation, and interaction with the audience is a must for a successful event, there is nevertheless a set structure to the show. Although some companies rely on complete improvisation, Without A Cue believes that the best mysteries have a beginning, middle, and end.

All shows are fully rehearsed. Although our actors are very experienced, they still need practice.

All of our actors are trained professionals. So please, don’t try this at home.
